  • I’ve facilitated numerous local non-profit strategic planning and operations improvement projects.
  • I’ve been an active member of a local non-profit serving Southern Africa for small business training and development and spent time in Malawi, Africa delivering training and learning from local business leaders.

I currently live in Lake Tapps, Washington with my lovely wife Michelle and two young children.  I enjoy camping, backpacking, mountain biking, kayaking, fishing, reading a variety of subjects, hosting outdoor dutch oven and cooking events, and generally enjoying the outdoors with friends, family, and community.
